Prove corruption charge, TN Minister tells Kamal Haasan

S.P. Velumani  

Dismissing actor Kamal Haasan’s allegations of corruption in the state government, Tamil Nadu minister S P Velumani on Saturday asked him to come out with evidence to prove his statement.

“Is there any evidence (for the actor) to prove that corruption prevails in various government departments. If so, let him prove it,” the Municipal Administration minister told reporters here.

The Minister also asked Mr. Haasan whether he was ready to furnish details of tax he had paid for his films.

The actor had reportedly said that there was corruption in various government departments in the state.

Mr. Velumani said the actor had never raised such allegations earlier. “It is of late that Haasan started talking about many things without any evidence.... he should collect details before talking about any topic.”

Reacting to the allegation, AIADMK (Amma) leader and Deputy Speaker in the Lok Sabha M Thambidurai said there was nothing stopping Tamil superstar from approach the judiciary if he had any evidence.
